Football News Update: England Aim to Book Euro 2024 Knockout Spot Against Denmark

England are looking to secure their place in the Euro 2024 knockout phase as they take on Denmark in a crucial Group C clash in Frankfurt, live on talkSPORT. The Three Lions got off to a winning start at the weekend, with Jude Bellingham’s powerful header securing a 1-0 victory over Serbia.

Gareth Southgate’s side weren’t at their best but managed to get the job done, and they now need three points to seal their spot in the round of 16. Meanwhile, Denmark drew 1-1 with Slovenia in their opening game and will be seeking all three points to leapfrog England in the group.

“This will be the fourth meeting between the two nations at a major tournament, with Denmark yet to win any of the previous three encounters (D1 L2). The Danes have managed to score just one goal in those previous clashes, which came via Mikkel Damsgaard’s free-kick in the semi-final of Euro 2020.”

England captain Harry Kane will be looking to continue his impressive goalscoring record at major international tournaments, having now scored in four consecutive competitions – matching a record held by Michael Owen and Wayne Rooney.

Southgate is expected to name an unchanged starting XI from the Serbia victory, with Trent Alexander-Arnold retaining his place in midfield. Phil Foden will also keep his spot, despite struggling to make an impact in the opening game, as the manager continues to show faith in the Manchester City star.

On the Denmark side, Alexander Bah has been replaced by Joakim Maehle in the starting lineup. Christian Eriksen will earn his 132nd cap for the national team, equalling Simon Kjaer’s record.

A win for England would not only secure their place in the Euro 2024 knockout phase but could also seal top spot in the group, depending on the result between Slovenia and Serbia. A draw would all but confirm their progression, while a defeat would leave them vulnerable heading into the final group game.

Fans can follow all the action live on talkSPORT, with Adrian Durham hosting the coverage and commentary provided by Jim Proudfoot and Stuart Pearce.
